Acerca de


Incisive, lively, witty, Perpetual Care brilliantly defies its subject matter. Using an impressive range of forms, styles, and metaphors, Susan Eisenberg draws us deeply into the emotional complexities of a "flock of illnesses." Whatever your background-as patient and/or provider- you will find this book difficult to put down. The poet's striking photographs add resonance to both the title and these surprisingly hopeful poems. - Martha Collins, poet, Blue Front In this powerful collection, Eisenberg captures the essence of being a patient in the modern health care system. Always poignant, at times playful, Eisenberg's economical and evocative words allow the reader to experience the full array of emotion associated with being a patient. I have shared these treasures with my patients and professional colleagues alike. So real, so true, so honest - at times breathtaking! - Donald I. Abrams, MD, Chief, Hematology-Oncology, San Francisco General Hospital; Professor of Clinical Medicine, University of California San Francisco Susan Eisenberg has written a strong collection of poems that will wake you up, shake you up and break your heart. - Diana Der Hovanessian, poet, Dancing at the Monastery Listening and hearing, looking and seeing, are the bedrock tools of doctoring that we must sharpen throughout a lifetime of practice. But as doctors we have our blind spots, and practice alone is not enough to overcome them. Through this haunting collection of poetry and photographic images, we bear witness to the patient's experience with the uncertainties of illness, the sharp edges of the health care system, and the communication divide between patient and doctor, guided, challenged, inspired and humbled by Eisenberg's stark humor, wisdom and resilience. - Barbara Gottlieb, MD, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston; Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
